A course in low-dimensional geometry - course

This book has grown out of two courses the author has taught at the University at Albany. The first course investigates the rigid motions (isometries) of the Euclidean plane and develops rosette, frieze and wallpaper groups. In particular, we study discrete subgroups of the group of isometries of the plane (i.e., two-dimensional crystallographic groups).
